According to Variety, Strand Releasing has grabbed the North American rights from TrustNordisk to A Somewhat Gentle Man from director Hans Petter Moland.

Strand will release the criminal comedy, starring Stellan Skarsgard, later this year.

A Somewhat Gentle Man follows an ex-convict who is just released from prison and wants to start over. He is seeking a more normal life. That becomes hard "as he has to cope with his gang of criminals, his son, a few women and the man who testified against him."

The film has already been sold to over 20 countries.
